Crest Nicholson have appointed a new architect and project team to review and redesign the masterplan for the District Centre to ensure that it better meets the demands of retailers, commercial and community operators and local residents. The design is being developed in line with the Development Brief submitted to Wokingham Borough Council in July 2018, however further details will be submitted upon conclusion of this design exercise. As part of this process, further consultations will be held towards the end of the year with key stakeholders including WBC and local Parish Councils along with a further public consultation.
WBC now own the gym, Arborfield Green Leisure Centre; a great community asset which opened to the public earlier this year. The Leisure Centre is next to Bohunt Secondary School and will form part of the range of new facilities to be provided within the District Centre. Discussions are also underway with a wide range of potential commercial and retail tenants to inform the design and ensure a vibrant and viable centre is created.
